Nietzsche has recently enjoyed much scrutiny from the nouveaux critiques. Jacques Derrida, the leader of that movement, here combines in his strikingly original and incisive fashion questions of sexuality, politics, writing, judgment, procreation, death, and even the weather into a far-reaching analysis of the challenges bequeathed to the modern world by Nietzsche.

Spurs, then, is aptly titled, for Derrida's "deconstructions" of Nietzsche's meanings will surely act as spurs to further thought and controversy. This dual-language edition offers the English-speaking reader who has some knowledge of French an opportunity to examine the stylistic virtuosity of Derrida's writing—of particular significance for his analysis of "the question of style."
Jacques Derrida is directeur d'études at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociale. Among his many books are Given Time, Dissemination, Margins of Philosophy, Of Spirit, Positioins, The Post Card, The Truth in Painting, and Writing and Difference all published by the University of Chicago Press.
